The Atlas of Beauty

From Mihaela Noroc, founder of The Atlas Of Beauty:

The Atlas of Beauty is a project about our planet’s diversity shown through portraits of women. Since almost 4 years ago, I travel around the world with my backpack and my camera. In this journey I photograph natural women surrounded by their environment. Until now I visited more than 50 countries with the project.

Today The Atlas of Beauty is one of the most popular photo projects in the world. It has strong communities on Facebook and Instagram while its Tumblr blog was the third most viral in 2015.

Through my photography I want to capture that feeling of warmth and serenity which comes from the eyes of a woman and can balance sometimes the negativity we see in the media.

Each woman is beautiful in her own way and beauty can teach us to be more tolerant. 

Many people from all around the world face discrimination just because they have a certain color, religion, ethnicity or because they are women. But we should celebrate diversity because we are all part of the same beautiful family. 

Soon The Atlas of Beauty will become a 352 pages book. You can pre-order it here.
